The goal of the Wellness Navigator is to enhance students’ overall well-being, assist with any barriers students may be facing and provide resources to support them in beginning and persisting at ECC.
My name is Abbie Bishop and I am the Wellness Navigator for East Central College. The purpose of my position is that I am here to help students with anything that might be stopping them from starting college or continuing with it. I am here to be a hub of resources on campus and within the community. Before I began at East Central College, I worked as a Youth Case Manager for the WIOA program where I made many connections to agencies in the community. Outside of work, I enjoy being around my family and friends or reading a great book. I am still new here to East Central, but I can already tell that I love the environment and culture here.
Services include but not limited to:
- Assist individuals with removing barriers to allow them to be a successful student
- Refer students to supportive services on campus and within the community
- Conduct one-on-one discussions with students about their holistic wellness
- Appointments are encouraged
- M–F 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
